Eastern Flight 401
in Miami

- “Well ah, tower, this is Eastern, ah, 401. It looks like we’re gonna have to circle; we don’t have a light on our nose gear yet.”

- “Eastern 401 heavy, roger, pull up, climb straight ahead to two thousand, go back to approach control, one twenty eight six.”

- “What? We’re still at two thousand, right? Hey what’s happening here? TOWER!”

IMPACT! Silence…

Flight 401 recorder, 11:34pm, December 29, 1972

Anyone interested in stories of the supernatural will most likely know the story of the famous plane crash of Eastern Flight 401 and the events that followed. On December 29, 1972, Eastern Flight 401, carrying 176 passenger and crew members, was on approach to Miami International Airport when a series of mechanical malfunctions began taking place. Flying blind in the night, the plane slammed into the Florida Everglades, killing 101 people including most of the crew.

Those who died on impact were the lucky ones. While some suffered slow deaths by drowning, others were actually dragged into the waters and eaten by alligators while waiting for rescue.

After recovering the injured and dead, Eastern took what parts were salvageable from the wreckage and used them as replacement parts for other planes. Immediately, passengers and crew members on those planes began to encounter the spirits of the pilot and co-pilot of Flight 401! While Eastern officials deny the reports of hauntings on their planes, it was reported that Eastern quickly removed and destroyed all parts of 401 that had been placed in the new planes. The mysterious sightings suddenly ceased.

The sightings on the planes might have come to an end, but down in the everglades, the reports are continuous and eerie as ever. Hunters and airboat guides have told many stories of hearing unearthly screams for help and moans of pain coming from the crash site, as well as seeing faces trapped below the surface of the dark and murky swamp. There are several airboat companies out of Miami that give night time tours of the everglades, and they are more than happy to take you to the site and tell you of their own experiences. It’s a trip well worth taking!
